Joshua Kelley remains afterthought in Week 15 thumping

Joshua Kelley rushed for 22 yards on five carries during the Chargers' 63-21 loss to the Raiders in Week 15. He also caught his lone target for a gain of six yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact

Of the Chargers' three active running backs, Kelley was least involved, though it was promising to see him registering more than four yards per carry. Nevertheless, he's off the fantasy radar for Week 16 against Buffalo.

Joshua Kelley rushes just three times in ugly Week 14

Joshua Kelley rushed for six yards on three carries during the Chargers' 24-7 loss to the Broncos in Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

Not only did rumors of backfield competition really never come to fruition, but Kelley was less productive than both Austin Ekeler and Isaiah Spiller. The 26-year-old is off the fantasy radar for Week 15 versus Vegas.

Joshua Kelley could compete for more carries

Joshua Kelley could see increased opportunities out of the backfield going forward, according to head coach Brandon Staley.

Fantasy Impact

Staley acknowledged the need to create more competition for carries after Austin Ekeler posted just 1.3 YPC last week. Kelley has looked solid in a backup role this season and could sneak into the low-end RB3 range if given double-digit touches every week.

Joshua Kelley sees eight touches in Week 13 win

Joshua Kelley rushed for 16 yards on six carries in the Chargers’ 6-0 win over the Patriots. He caught 2-of-3 targets for nine yards through the air.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley continues to operate as the backup to Austin Ekeler. The 26-year-old struggled to get anything consistent going, mostly due to the weather conditions in New England. Kelley will look to bounce back in Week 14 against a tough Denver defense.

Joshua Kelley sees just three carries in Week 12

Joshua Kelley carried the ball three times for eight yards and added two catches for six yards in a 20-10 loss to the Ravens in Week 12.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley was lightly used as the backup to Austin Ekeler. The eight rushing yards were his fewest in an outing since Week 6 against Dallas. Kelley is strictly a handcuff option in fantasy behind Ekeler moving forward. He will face the Patriots in Week 13.
